There's a retro vibe at this storied spot, serving hot dogs with chili sauce since 1918.- Google
People talk about hot dogs, chili sauce, buns are nice, chocolate milk and neon sign

The BEST HOTDOGS I HAVE HAD in my life. the hotdog was cooked and prepared to perfection all the ingredients tasted delicious the staff was kind and the décor brings back memories of when I ate there in the 60's to now. odd thing is, I am only 15.

If you're in Worcester you've arrived. No need to go any further for a hot dog in the U.S. (or anywhere else) than Coney Island. Its almost at the head of Southbridge street off Madison, next door to Union Music, the place the pros go, especially the Bluesmen, Rockers and Acoustic musicians who mostly already know about Road Food. When I go in here I get an armload of dogs and a bunch of Cokes, especially if I'm going to rehearsals or a recording gig. Nothing on earth beats steamed soft sweet buns, a great piece of meat, their mustard, that sauce they'll die before they tell anyone what's in it, sweet onions and whatever else they have. The inside is old, almost run-of-the-century, with booths that have names and sweet promises of love deeply carved into them- all authentic. Place is dedicated to nothing but a pure eating experience. Its almost like its own kind of chapel dedicated to the wholly irreverent worship of the red hot. I feel like a salmon that's come home to spawn. I can't eat these things slowly. Impossible. I'm not really sure if six is enough. But that's what I order. At least two sodas. Bag o' chips. You know what they say about seeing Paris? Well, you can say that about eating a hot dog here at Coney Island.

If you don't enjoy a Coney island dog ordered up you sir are anti-American and the terrorists win. And God also loves Coney island.

Ok I understand that this place has been around for a long time. It has history, it has memories, it has an old time feel, etc... But usually places like this have good food hand made with love, a home town uniqueness. To be honest it is cool to see this place and know at one time this really was the way they used to make dinners. In that aspect the place is great. The food oh my god. Is it an editable hotdog yes? Is it a good hot dog no. wait NO! Spikes is a good hot dog Nathans is a good hot dog, go to Chicago that's good hot dog. This place uses the cheapest bottom of the barrel hot dog meat. Ok then you're thinking maybe it's not the dog that good it's the bread. Ummmm NO! The bread basic cheap Wal-Mart bread. Maybe it's the toppings, maybe they have a special family made topping? NO! Just ketchup and mustard and some weird sauce they put on it. Ok then maybe it's the unique combos they make with a dog. Like hotdog and hamburger in the same bun or a special one of a kind thing. NO! If you need to go there once check it out say you have been there, but be honest about the reviews it's an old school place with a very subpar menu. If you're visiting from someplace else you will Not tell your home town friends about.

Best dogs, best deals! No other hot dog can compete! They've been doing it so long my grandparents remember when it was 5 cents a dog, and it's still just as tasty! My only complaint is that I forget when they take their summer vacation and have to crave their dogs until they return!
